Hand-pump @ union hotel. Pours near clear amber orange with resilient light off white head and excellent specked lace. Light herbs, floral notes, grains, light caramel, vanilla and toast. Light med body, low carbonation. Finish is light balanced sweet and touch grainy and bitter. Satisfying well done beer.

RafeAU (390) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2015
Taste at the Pot Belly, Canberra. An okay English style bitter - this style is not my thing, I must admit, so this rating is a bit biased against the style.

4%ABV. English Bitter Tapped out a nice deep amber, 16ºSRM producing a bounteous citrusy hoppy nose. The palate is full of Lemon and Grapefruit meaning that there is a citrusy tang to the bitters. Finishes off neatly with a slightly grassy bitter herb finish. American or NZ hops. Amarillo, Nelson sauvin and citra hops are hinted at. Mouthfeel carbonated. Goes on favorites list.

Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2015
Young Henry's got good reputation at modernising some traditional styles. The can range good. This has a bit of caramel, cherries, light citrus and bitterness. Another good can. 375ml can, 4%, 1.2std drks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wazzawazza (60) - Geraldton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2015
Not bad. Respectable head which buggers off quickly, leaving minor lacing. Darker than expected. Not too bitter and easy on the palate.

TedE (491) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2015
640ml bottle into pint glass. Faint fruity hop nose. Looks the goods. Golden bronze beer with solid white head. High carbonation for a bitter with a constant stream of tiny bubbles. Lightly bitter, quite watery. Finish is dry, a little citric & a touch of cashew. True to style though perhaps a touch too bitter for an English style ’bitter’.

hank37 (182) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2015
Murky brown with thick pillowy off-white head. Malty roasty on the nose. Touch of spicy peppery with a big dry malt extract-y hit - some spruce and dried stone fruit also. Really enjoyable.

Malrider69 (92) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2014
Pours a hazy copper/dark amber colour with a small but long-lasting oily head. Pleasant roasted malt aroma with a mildly bitter taste that sits well on the palate.
